In most places, a failure to respond would result in a default
judgment for the aggrieved party—in this case Matthew.
Here, the situation here is more complicated. There was a private
communication with the committee, but such side conversations are
unfair: How can Matthew ever feel that justice was served? I would
personally not feel closure unless I saw all such communications and
had an opportunity to respond.
Secrecy, if it is really needed, should instead be implemented by
requiring all parties involved to keep sealed records confidential.
I urge the committee to please reconsider its willingness to engage
with one party without the other present. The dignity of the Technical
Committee—Debian's highest and most hallowed body—could suffer.
